http://www.archive.org/details/TheOther - Edited to cut off the valid copyright notice at the end
http://www.archive.org/details/WhenAStrangerCalls - Valid Notice
http://www.archive.org/details/TheUfoFiles-UnsolvedMysteries-Volume12 - Valid Notice
http://www.archive.org/details/HerculesAgainstTheBarbarians - Valid Notice
http://www.archive.org/details/LastOfTheVikings - Eligible For GATT
http://www.archive.org/details/Space.Chimps - 2008 film with Arabic subtitles. Why do these Middle-Eastern people keep stealing films? Don't they like their hands?

Since Cooperway4 is such a loud defender of theft of copyrighted materials, I checked all his reviews and found this one, too:

http://www.archive.org/details/NightOfTheLivingDeadInColor - Only the original B&W version is PD.

Thanks, Coop! Keep up the good work!

I wonder if these two movies, posted by the same uploader, are copyright violations as well?

MASSACRE definitely is and I would believe INSANE is also. MASSACRE was one of the ones I was going to put up a couple of years ago but was told it was copyright.

Thanks for comfirming, Video Cellar. It seems to me that a lot of the copyrighted stuff that comes in lately falls into the horror/sci-fi category, and to be honest, I don't think there's too much more in that area floating around that isn't already here.

The only thief is you. Stealing public domain movies from here using registrations for unrelated books.

Skybandit did not steal anything from the public domain. The film "The Last Viking" was taken from the US public domain by laws codifying the Uruguay Round of the General Agreement on Tarifs and Trade. Blame the Presidents who oversaw USA's involvement in that round (Reagan, Bush Sr, Clinton) and the organisation that oversees the agreement (the World Trade Organisation) before you blame people who simply know, accept and respect that this has been codified in law and that the works it took from the public domain are now copyright and that copyright will endure for the remainder of a complete term of protection under the legislation - whether they like it or not.

Sky, I have question about Last of the Vikings... In your review on Last of the Vikings the Copyright notice that you posted said "Text" and the Text was registered in 1964. Does that mean that the movie is copyrighted as well? Doesn't make sense to me...

Am I Christ? I don't think so...as long as I take my medication :)
Yeah, I screwwed up at 3 AM. Still, it's GATT eligible, and has been removed for that reason.

Now Now, no need to be that way Sky lol. Trust me I'm all for movies being removed from here if they are copyrighted because like every other person on here who has appreciated the services of the IA for a while now I sincerely want this site to remain going and I appreciate you Sky for getting these removed.

This film is most definitely a GATT/URAA restored film. It is a French/Italian co-production and was published in its country of origin over a year before it was published in the US. This film is not in the public domain in its country of origin, where copyright in films lasts for 70 years after the death of the last surving principle author of the film. It might have briefly been in the public domain in the US in the first half of the 1990s, but the copyright was automatically restored (there is no requirement to register for GATT/URAA protection) in 1996.
